SJU Welcomes Students To Fall 2014 Semester

Friday, August 29, 2014

Welcome to the start of the 2014–2015 academic year! It’s an amazing time to be a part of the St. John’s University community.  As you settle in for what promises to be an exceptional year, we hope you take advantage of everything the University has to offer.

From Thursday, August 28, through Thursday, September 18, the Queens campus will be hosting a series of activities and events for students as part of our Red Carpet Welcome. Whether you attend Playfair inside the Taffner Field House, Movie Night on the Great Lawn, or a soccer game at Belson Stadium, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to connect with your fellow Johnnies.

Students attending our Staten Island campus can ease back into the school year during the Week of Welcome. Events include the Welcome Back Party at the Campus Center, Movie Night on the Staten Island Great Lawn, and a special late-night shopping trip to Target.

While there is a lot of great news on campus this year, our biggest news is the arrival of our 17th president, Conrado "Bobby" Gempesaw, Ph.D.  We hope you will join us in welcoming him to the University.
